In a secluded valley in the Serra da Sao Mamede, Alto Alentejo, Portugal.

Our Quinta used to be a holiday rental. This is what guests said.

Delightful Surprise Peaceful Countryside

It has been a while since we stayed in Portugal and for many years ago we rented a house south of Porto so Alentejo was new to us. But what a delightful surprise - just what we were looking for - peaceful countryside, beautiful nature and very friendly locals. This time the slogan - where time is time hits the mark.

We needed a place where we could really relax and recharge our batteries and we did all that and it was a good surprise that mobiles did not work - no calls, texts, or emails for 2 weeks. Just perfect.

We did some local walks but did not tour the surrounding this summer as none of us has a drivers licence - but did very well without a car too. We had pre-ordered a big van and a driver for Lisbon transfers and with the help of Patricia at Portalegre tourist office found a nice English speaking taxi driver in Portalegre.

Please note we now have Broadband with Wi Fi.
